Silence On The Real Story Of The BBC Political Editor Laura Kuenssberg


For days the press raged on about the sexism being piled against the BBCs Political Editor Laura Kuenssberg.  38Degrees then took down the petition that had started the who thing off citing abusive sexist quotes on Twitter and Facebook. David Cameron even got in on the act but of course that is par for the course for out PR seeking PM. Then Craig Murray challenged the argument. He contacted 38Degrees to ask them for references to the tweets the transcript of this conversation can be read here  As is shown in the transcript 38Degrees could not supply any links.  Craig gives an in-depth analysis of the entire episode here.kuen

 

The petition signed by 35,000 people disappeared from the 38Degrees site. Based on the number of people used to conduct a survey, just over a thousand, it would be reasonable to argue that 35,000 signatures represented a depth of feeling by a large number of people against the political bias demonstrated by Kuenssburg in favour of the Tory Party and the negative reporting by this Political Editor against the Labour Party and Jeremy Corbyn in particular. However the Tory Party and our right-wing press managed to turn the focus away from the agenda of bias and on to a fictitious sexist one. How often have we seen this manipulation of facts that challenge these two groups in the past.

 

So following the days of press coverage about the fictitious sexism story did the press rush forward with the hot news that the whole thing had been made up. That David Cameron had once again chosen the wrong horse. That 38Degrees had removed the petition despite clearly having neither seen or been given any evidence of sexism. In fact they admit themselves there was no such comments on their site by any of the 35,000 that signed the petition.

 

As stated in AnotherAngryVoice post on the matter ‘One of the worst things from 38 Degrees perspective is that by deleting the petition they handed ammunition to the likes of David Cameron and Lucy Allan (the disgusting Tory liar who got caught out fabricating a death threat in order to harvest public sympathy) to attack Jeremy Corbyn with at Prime Minister’s Questions.’/

 

Interesting how in the end it all turned out to be Jeremy Corbyn’s fault isn’t it.

    If there were ‘no comments like that’, explain the removal, not very democratic is it. 38°, close yourself down, you are surplus to democratic requirements.

    However strongly you may feel about a subject, Internet etiquette requires that you do not shout by using Capitals all the time. It really defeats the purpose of your purple prose because no-one can read it easily so they give up on line 2. Secondly, the use of the full stop is much appreciated not only in abbreviations. Thirdly, avoid the commenting after a good night where temperance has come in several lengths behind the field. I agree with the sentiments, so look on this as advice, not criticism.

    Geoff. I agree it was somewhat undemocratic of 38Degrees to remove the petition. They did in fairness contact and get agreement from the petition’s author. However one wonders how much pressure they were put under. The petition was in fact presented to the BBC with the 35,000 signatures on but without doubt that number would have been much higher had it been left to run.

    From personal experience I can say the BBC has a policy of not commenting on petitions to itself and probably tries its best to ignore them.

    However we must keep pushing for some kind of fairness in their political reporting. It was bad under Nick Robinson but the present Political Editor and her side kick John Pienaar really take bias reporting to a whole new level.
